Ettalong Foreshore Walk

A 2.8km walk along Brisbane Water at Ettalong Beach.

View across Brisbane Water at the beginning of the walk.
A short walk along Ettalong foreshore with lovely scenic views across the bay. As this walk has little shade it is best done early in the morning, late in the afternoon or on a cool or cloudy day, unless of course you are going for a swim. The beach is small and the waters calm. The walk has seats in several locations on timbered platforms overlooking the bay.

Fancy a bite to eat? There are picnic areas or the War Memorial club has breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Halftide Brasserie and coffee, cake or light snacks at the Rocky Point Cafe.

If you have kids with you there is a great picnic spot and playground in the next suburb close to Umina Beach Surf Club called The Peninsula Recreation Precinct and fantastic pies at Bremen Patisserie in West Street Umina. This is the home of gourmet pies and sumptuous cakes winning numerous national awards.
